VIA unveils LCD-mounted PC

Ah VIA. Thanks for shrinking computers. Your latest VESA-mounted PC makes me smile.

Once used for commercial displays, VIA will be releasing a consumer version of a PC that can be attached to the back of any standard LCD monitor. So if space is at a premium or you just want to amaze your friends, this could be right up your alley.

It’s available in 1.0GHZ and 1.5GHZ VIA Eden ULV chipsets, no fans, built-in wireless, VGA and DVI ports, S-Video out, 4 USB, Gigabit Ethernet, and a laptop or flash-based hard drive. Perfect for a gigantic-screen Car PC or, hell, mount one in the bathroom.

Pricing and availability not yet set. I’d expect it to be somewhat affordable, though, coming from VIA. Like well under $1000, affordable.
